"Frankly, Indonesian market is still very new to MetaTrader 5, since its members are mostly familiar with MetaTrader 4", — says Vincent Yohanes Chandra, COO of Jakarta Futures Exchange. "Initially, we faced a lot of rejections as I think it is very natural that people are quiet resistant to changes (even if they are for good). However, we have been working very hard in educating our clients and marketing the benefits of MetaTrader 5 compared to MetaTrader 4, and it has been showing results over recent time. We strongly believe that adopting MetaTrader 5 is the right decision and, of course, we hope MetaQuotes will greatly support us as always. Customer Service is not a department, it is a philosophy in our company. We strongly believe in propelling service delivery through robust technology; MetaTrader 5 is surely one of the vital components in delivering quality service".

"According to our information, MetaTrader 5 prospects in Indonesia are quite promising, since it is an updated version of MetaTrader 4 which adds more features than the previous one", — adds Mr. Tan, Analytics Manager at the Indonesian portal. "We think, MetaTrader 5 can be a success in Indonesia, since traders in Indonesia are growing as well as brokerage firms".

Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex already attract traders using MQL5 coupons

One month ago we announced the launch of MQL5 coupons allowing brokers to support their traders willing to use the MetaTrader services. Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex companies have become the first participants to implement the new loyalty program and apply coupons to motivate traders.

"By offering coupons to our existing and potential clients, we are pursuing two main objectives: attracting new traders and increasing the loyalty of our existing clients", — says Evgeny Zhilin, Head of Operations at Just2Trade, commenting on launching the coupons program. "Right from the onset, the new system has proved to be a powerful marketing tool improving the company stats in both quality and quantity. It provides a great way to stimulate clients to connect to strategies of successful traders. Our clients are able to see for themselves that Forex provides opportunities for stable profit if traded wisely. We offer 50 USD coupons for traders having at least 1 000 USD on their deposits. The coupons can be used to pay for the first month of a signal subscription".

Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex already attract traders using MQL5 coupons

"In recent years, RoboForex has been developing a series of investment products, and a copy trading service is one notable example", — notes Anton Ivanov, Chief Markeing Officer of RoboForex. "This strategic direction shows a stable and dynamic growth of popularity among our clients, therefore we welcome the launch of the "MQL5 coupons" service from the industry leader — the MetaQuotes Software company. Several of our traders are at the Top of the MQL5 Signals service and have thousands of subscribers with the total amount of managed funds exceeding 12 million USD. Due to such a high demand for the product, we decided to launch a promotional campaign and distribute 2017 trading signals coupons for 40 USD each among RoboForex Ltd active clients".

"The new Coupons service from MetaQuotes is a convenient way to receive products and services for the popular MetaTrader platforms", — adds Alexander Goryachev, senior analyst at FreshForex. "General-purpose MONEY coupons for 50 USD have sparked the greatest interest among our clients since they allow refilling MQL5 accounts and paying for any services and purchases. There are also many customers willing to buy scripts and Expert Advisors. In order to popularize the new service, we are raffling off 10 coupons for $50 among our clients from March 14 to April 13. FreshForex has been working on Forex for 12 years already. The benefit of our customers is ultimately our benefit as well! Therefore, we follow the market trends in order not to miss exciting and practical gifts for our clients".

A number of other major brokers are actively testing the service at the moment preparing special offers for traders. Stay in touch! The number of companies offering coupons will soon increase significantly.

Polish integrator Empirica Software starts development of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5

Following Tools for Brokers, another team of software developers has announced the development of brokerage solutions for MetaTrader 5. The Polish integrator Empirica Software has become the next institutional software provider for companies using the advanced multi-asset platform. The trend becomes more visible as more brokers actively switching to MetaTrader 5 generate a demand for applications expanding and complementing the platform features, while tech service providers strive to satisfy this demand by pushing further the development of the platform and its infrastructure.

"For the last 6 years we have strengthened our market position as leading software partner for financial institutions and FinTech companies. We have developed a very strong algorithmic engine, that has already made one of our customers the fastest market maker on Warsaw Stock Exchange. We are pioneers in developing intelligent robo-technology based on machine learning.

Tools for Brokers launches a portfolio of MetaTrader 5 brokerage solutions

Tools for Brokers has developed a set of solutions for the MetaTrader 5 trading platform to provide brokers with additional services and simplify their transition to the new technology. For the last seven years, the integrator team has been developing MetaTrader 4 plugins for over 250 companies around the world and has been among the first tech providers that recognized the potential of the next-generation multi-asset platform. The offered institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5 brokers includes:

  • Bonus Manager for reducing risks by canceling credit bonuses in case of unfavorable conditions
  • Multi-Level Agent Commission for creating a hierarchical partnership system
  • PAMM for creating an asset management system on the server
  • Bridge Aggregator — the gateway for connecting multiple platforms (MetaTrader 4/5) to multiple liquidity providers

 Tools for Brokers launches a portfolio of MetaTrader 5 brokerage solutions

"Our company has an exceptionally positive experience of working with MetaTrader 5", — says Aleksey Kutsenko, the founder and CEO of Tools for Brokers. "MetaQuotes Software has developed a brand new product featuring significant advantages in terms of convenience and functionality. I believe, MetaTrader 5 is a must for all brokers really planning for the future".

Among the many benefits of the platform, the Tools for Brokers team highlights the ability to select between aggregate and hedging positions on client accounts. This function allows for efficient arrangement of work on several financial markets simultaneously: ​Forex, stocks and futures. Thus, the platform is able to meet the requirements of a wide variety of customers - from novice traders to hedge funds and large institutional clients.


Aleksey Kutsenko, Tools for Brokers

Besides, the developers from Tools for Brokers point out that unlike MetaTrader 4, the new platform has a modular architecture and its various components can be installed on different physical servers. First, this capability improves the platform performance and resilience: if one component suddenly fails, others continue working. Second, this means better protection against DDOS attacks since it is much more difficult to attack multiple servers at once. According to the integrator company team, another key advantage of MetaTrader 5 is that the 64-bit version of the server allows using a larger amount of RAM for storing considerable data volumes, as well as rendering services to more simultaneously connected clients.

"This year, the further development of MetaTrader 5 additions and plug-ins will be one of our key areas", — adds Aleksey Kutsenko. "Tools for Brokers is ready to provide any services related to the platform support and development of necessary solutions".
